The Windows Registry is in charge of controlling virtually all the local system configurations. Every time you install/uninstall new software or create/delete new files, they leave a trace in the Windows Registry. Also, when you uninstall a given software or delete a certain file, they leave a trace in the Windows Registry.

With time, the Registry becomes clogged up, and that’s when things start being sluggish on your computer.
